Read full description of the books Hokus pokus:

Vonegat je rano, među prvima, prešao onu granicu zgražanja i očaja iza koje postaje jasno da samo smeh – istina, najčešće melanholičan, gorak, ili ciničan smeh – može biti kakvo-takvo oružje, ili makar lek protiv užasa raščovečene epohe progresa.

Precizan realistički okvir, kakav je onaj u koji je smeštena radnja romana Hokus-pokus, najbolje ocrtava užase sveta s kraja milenijuma, sveta koji je svojom izopačenošću nadmašio i najmračnija antiutopijska predviđanja, i u kome donedavno zastrašujuća Orvelova 1984. sve više liči na naivnu eskapističku pastoralu. Zbog toga ni u ovom romanu nema drugih pitanja do onih koja Kurt Vonegat neprekidno postavlja još od vremena svojih „palp” početaka: zbog čega je ljudima potrebno tako malo da prestanu da budu ljudi; zbog čega bez milosti ubijaju jedni druge, a svi skupa planetu na kojoj žive; hoće li još dugo rat ostati neprikosnovena, krunska metafora vaskolike apsurdnosti ljudskog života, u kome se između dva rešenja uvek bira ono u kome ima manje logike i smisla, a više mogućnosti za rušenje i ubijanje? Na sva ta pitanja Judžin Debs Hartke nemoćno sleže ramenima – nije njegovo da na njih odgovara. Važan deo odgovora ipak sluti. Naime, sve spomenute, i mnoge druge nakaznosti, postojaće dokle god bude postojala „vladajuća klasa”. Jer, vladajuća klasa vlada i čudesnom veštinom „hokus-pokusa”, bezočno licemerne, slatkorečive i smrtonosne retorike, koja s lakoćom objašnjava i opravdava Hirošimu i Vijetnam.

Read information about the author

Ebook Hokus pokus read Online! Kurt Vonnegut, Junior was an American novelist, satirist, and most recently, graphic artist. He was recognized as New York State Author for 2001-2003.

He was born in Indianapolis, later the setting for many of his novels. He attended Cornell University from 1941 to 1943, where he wrote a column for the student newspaper, the Cornell Daily Sun. Vonnegut trained as a chemist and worked as a journalist before joining the U.S. Army and serving in World War II.

After the war, he attended University of Chicago as a graduate student in anthropology and also worked as a police reporter at the City News Bureau of Chicago. He left Chicago to work in Schenectady, New York in public relations for General Electric. He attributed his unadorned writing style to his reporting work.

His experiences as an advance scout in the Battle of the Bulge, and in particular his witnessing of the bombing of Dresden, Germany whilst a prisoner of war, would inform much of his work. This event would also form the core of his most famous work, Slaughterhouse-Five, the book which would make him a millionaire. This acerbic 200-page book is what most people mean when they describe a work as "Vonnegutian" in scope.

Vonnegut was a self-proclaimed humanist and socialist (influenced by the style of Indiana's own Eugene V. Debs) and a lifelong supporter of the American Civil Liberties Union.


The novelist is known for works blending satire, black comedy and science fiction, such as Slaughterhouse-Five (1969), Cat's Cradle (1963), and Breakfast of Champions (1973)
